Daniel Cameron, local officials celebrate grand opening of Attorney General’s NKY Field Office

Kentucky Attorney General Daniel Cameron on Tuesday joined local officials in Covington for the grand opening of the AG’s Northern Kentucky Field Office.

The opening of the field office is a step toward expanding the footprint of the Attorney General’s Office throughout the Commonwealth. Cameron is committed to establishing physical offices in regions across the state in order to provide Kentuckians with quick and reliable access to the services offered by the Office.

“For years, the work of the Attorney General’s Office has been concentrated primarily in Frankfort, which is not accessible for every Kentuckian, and establishing regional field offices will allow us to take our work directly to those we serve,” said Attorney General Cameron. “As one of the fastest-growing regions in the state, it’s important for us to have a physical presence in Northern Kentucky so that we can work alongside law enforcement, prosecutors, and advocates to address local public safety challenges and provide a method for Kentuckians to get help from our Office.”

Senator Chris McDaniel, Chair of the Senate Appropriations & Revenue Committee, and Representative Ed Massey, Chair of the House Judiciary Committee, provided remarks at the grand opening ceremony.

“The opening of this Kenton County field office demonstrates the commitment of the Attorney General and the General Assembly to partnering with our region to address local public safety challenges, and we are proud to welcome them to the community,” said McDaniel. “We are grateful for the direct services that this new office will provide for Northern Kentucky, and we look forward to a continued partnership with the Attorney General’s office.”

“It’s a privilege to welcome the Attorney General and his staff to Northern Kentucky as they strive to make justice more accessible for every Kentuckian,” said Massey. “This is a pivotal move towards increasing the state’s services in our region and will have an immediate effect on Northern Kentucky…for that, I am grateful.”

The field office will be located in the Kenton County Government Center, which houses the Kenton County Fiscal Court and numerous other key government agencies.

“I’m very appreciative that Attorney General Daniel Cameron is opening an office in Northern Kentucky,” said Kenton County Judge/Executive Kris Knochelmann. “Historically, this region has been isolated from Frankfort and the statewide decision-makers in the Capitol. Bringing a physical presence and staff to our community will break down those barriers and help better connect our region with the rest of Kentucky. Much thanks to Attorney General Daniel Cameron for acting decisively to better connect Northern Kentucky to the Commonwealth.”

In addition to the Northern Kentucky Field Office, the Attorney General’s Office also has locations in Prestonsburg and Louisville. To learn more, visit ag.ky.gov.
